Chipotle Barbeque Sauce
DirectionsHeat the oil over med-high heat.
Add the garlic, celery and onion, saute for 7 minutes, or until the vegetables have softened.
Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, cover partially and simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Blend the sauce in a food processor or blender.
Pour mixture back into the sauce pan.
Cook over low for an additional 10 minutes.
Serve warm, or refrigerate for up to 5 days in an air tight container.
Note: if you're using this sauce to marinate meat before grilling (or baste while grilling), I suggest using honey instead of sugar.
